The birth of a baby can change lots of things. Mary’s surprising pregnancy and the birth of her son certainly changed her life. The birth of Jesus, and his life that followed, dramatically changed history. But can a baby born more than 2,000 years ago make a difference today? Jesus did change history. But, can Jesus change me? Can Jesus make my life better?
The answer is, “Yes!” Jesus still brings positive change. Christmas brings a real sense of optimism and faith and hope that things can actually be different. You may find the events surrounding the birth of Jesus a bit hard to believe. If so, you are not alone. But Jesus really came! And when you hear the entire story, the back-story, everything about Jesus really is quite remarkable! Jesus changes everything!
